La Ronge RCMP have arrested a Hall Lake man on charges of child pornography.


It was on February 23rd of this month police officers received a tip from a concerned member of the public that illicit activity was going on in the area.


An investigation was launched and a 22 year-old Hall Lake man was later arrested. James Stanley Roberts faces charges of possession of child pornography, production of child pornography, and sexual assault.


RCMP spokesperson Heather Russell says the public is largely responsible for the man’s apprehension.


An officer from the La Ronge detachment says the community of Hall Lake has held a meeting to address the issue.


Russell admits it is a crime not usually associated with Northern Saskatchewan.
